Romney's 0 percent black support

Full story: The Washington Post

Rare is the time that a poll number makes me gasp. But there is one in the latest NBC News-Wall Street Journal poll that elicited one.

Point blank, Howard Stern's who interviewed these random people shows us that these same people who just vote for Obama and carry his portrait don't know why they voted on issues. Believe me, the only reason he got elected because he was black. If he had been white, trust me, no one would vote for him. Couple years ago before the election, a group of USC athletes were asked prior to the Rose Bowl preparation against PSU about the upcoming election, most didn't even know who Joe Biden was at the time. Some didn't have a clue who Sarah Palin was. And these were USC kids, so most people out there who just vote, they don't know anything. Tells you that this year aint no different. That's why we are in trouble, people who vote that don't have a clue, should be giving a test on basic economics first. We are to fascinated by TV and image, but not about politics itself. What a shame!!!
While that may be true of SOME black folks, many of us were paying very close attention to the 2008 campaign. We were just as horrified as many of our white counterparts that the likes of Sarah Palin could be a heartbeat away from the presidency, as ignorant and ill-informed as she was and still is. Besides, even before we knew she existed, there were things about McCain that were troubling. He was forgetful about certain things, and he ended up doing some of the same pandering to the GOP base that Palin was doing. Barack Obama was clearly the better choice, and for me, his color was not the issue. He is also a much better choice than Romney, who has provided too many cringe-inducing episodes to count and who has told us we wouldn't vote for him if he told us what he'd do as president. The fact that the president has such a wide lead in certain swing states is no coincidence, but is a testament to the painfully obvious shortcomings of Willard Romney as well as his proposed policies.

And so what is your point? Anyone who still believes that the president is a Muslim, socialist, Marxist is also too ignorant to vote, and there is a significant number of Republicans who believe the nonsense.
I don't think Obama is a socialist, I , along with economist Thomas Sowell,think he is a fascist which is socialism with a capitalistic veneer. Further,you would think Obama would release his college records to disprove statements taken under oath that he entered college as a foreign student. But no, he has an army of lawyers preventing any such release. I wonder why, don't you?

Then why do most of the latest polls show him leading Romney, especially in critical swing states? Obviously, among those polled, there must be a sizeable number of white folks. Are you one of those folks who think people have to vote for lousy candidates like Romney who can't even specify what he would do as president, other than to say we wouldn't vote for him if he did in order to prove they are not racists? There are some black folks who don't pay much attention to politics and those are most likely the ones who voted for Obama just on the basis of color. By the same token, there are some white folks who voted against him on that very same basis. I'm able to acknowledge that there were other white folks who voted against him just because they disagreed with his policies. But for some reason, there are those on this forum who can't seem to grasp that most of us voted for Obama because we agreed with his policies and disagreed with McCain's. Since we've been voting mostly for Democrats, it shouldn't be a surprise that we voted for Obama. It's ironic that they seem to think only black folks don't want Romney as president. If that were the case, all the polls would show Romney with a huge, insurmountable lead at this time.

Anne, I don't know is going to win but I guarantee you a percentage of people who played by the economic rules and took a beating the last four years will not be suckers anymore. Most of them are worth far less and are not savers. They will spend what they got left and limp into retirement. Then they will collect more. and if possibl cheat and corrupt themselves as they see what others have done. the smart ones who have much less guilt will do that now. Do as you see others and you feel better about what is taken from you.

Because Obama is a great BSer. He lies so often he doesn't even know when he is telling the truth.

I think its important for us to understand that the Fast and Furious program was a field-initiated program begun under the previous administration....
President Barack Obama

The Fast and Furious program was started in October 2009, nine months into the Obama presidency. Other gun walking programs may have previously existed but the infamous and dangerous Fast and Furious field -initiated program began during the Obama administration so the president lied once again.

Yo' downlow69, no one cares about what you say about the Black president with the middle name HUSSEIN. When he easily wins re-election, you stupid klan monkeys are going to simultaneously drink Jim Jones Juice to end your stupid problems. Romney is a weak coward and would have been an embarrassment for this country as president. After all, it was Mrs. Ham romney that told everyone to stop picking on her husband because it is hard. Our brave president has experienced worse from racist p.o.s like you and his classy wife never whined about it. Come to think of it, Mrs. Romney would have been an embarrassment to our country too.

Jim Jones was a favorite of the left wing and he would have loved Barack Obama and his socialist policies.
